Re: My HP IPAQ PDA is connecting to my computer to sync...

The blue light means connection (via Bluetooth)I believe and the red light is the power light.

Are you able to transfer between the PCA and IPaq ?

My home desk top says this UBS device attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognized it and calls the device unknown.

Firstly, reboot both your PC and PDA. If they keep failing to connect, delete the partnership between them, both on your PC and PDA. If they keep refusing to connect, remove ActiveSync (for WinXP) or WMDC (for Vista & 7) from your PC and reinstall it.
Hope you are able to have your device synced soon.
Cheers! Carlos

HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista

Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: ( When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

Active sync problem

check your anti-virus and firewall software - this can prevent outside connections being made over activesync

Won't sync from iPAQ to PC

Sounds like you've got the ActiveSync setting for the Calendar set to one-way from computer to PDA, not Synchronise, which means the computer will always over-write anything it finds on the PDA that isn't in the computer. Try uninstalling/reinstalling ActiveSync, and pay particular attention to all the settings when you reconnect the PDA and it sets up the connection - from memory at this point you can define the "direction" of synchronisation.

PC/PDA "connected" yet PC won't read PDA

try syncing through bluetooth, there could be a problem with the cradle. i have had an issue very similar to yours and had to do a soft reset on my pda. then set up your device to use a blue tooth connection( you may need to buy a bluetooth dongle for your pc).

IPAQ 3955 Won't Sync?

Try uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling ActiveSync on the host. If you haven't yet upgraded to 3.6, maybe upgrading will clear up the problem.
